Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Jerrys Masterpeice

Listening to JGB and he opens w/ Masterpeice on 7-27-80, amazing for no other reason than the animation in Jerrys voice.
When heard from the Dead was it exclusively a Bobby tune?, I can't recall any GD versions featuring Jerry, of course it was a bumper crop for fungi this year so not all my faculties are completely intact, that said can someone shine some light on this? Please share your favorite Masterpeice if you'd like. (it doesn't even have to be that song ,or a song ) Happy Trails Everyone

the ones from '72 are really nice. extra twangy and extra soulful with animated vocals and big bent notes on the strat. good times.

I saw a great version of this with the Garcia & Kahn acoustic, at the Beverly Theater on 5/31/85 . The crowd, bless their hearts, was so over enthuestic , that it was hard to hear Jerry ! Masterpiece , being a song , they didn't know at the time, they were mostly quiet, so I could hear it !
I have always loved that song, since I got Dylan's version ( with Leon Russell), on the Greatest Hits Vol. II . The Band's , with Levon Helm singing, Is one of the Band's great moments ( the best on their album Cahoots ).
So I was pretty happy to hear Jerry, then The Dead , do it . Garcia's versions, stack up there with the Dylan/Band versions,( Dylan, by the way , always like Jerry's versions of his songs ) . Weir's versions are, bless his heart,in my opinion, not the same league, but still pretty decent, and it was always great to get a "new" Bobby song .

Levon is a national treasure,He also paints a beautiful masterpeice.The roads that Dylan has layed will stand the test of time just as Michaelangolo's David.

2/14/81 is one of the best I saw,coupled in the same set with a fine Tangled Up.
